Missions began in the heart of God. His theme of love for the world is evident throughout the Bible. Yet, we've become citizens highly focused on ourselves often forgetting the needs of the people in the world around us. Missions education in the church is now, more than ever, vitally important. The need and means to reach the world for Christ is stronger than ever. 

Now is the time to make a radical change. After Paul's conversion, he became a missionary for life. Our church members can also be as radically involved in missions.  A variety of interactive learning activities will introduce you to the basics of why missions and missions education is important in the church.
